Important safety updates
Clarification on underaged youth participation in IPSF events:
Clarifications were requested regarding the travel and accommodations of underage (below 18 years) youth during IPSF. It is the sole responsibility of parents to arrange transportation/travel and stay of all their underaged participants.
During their stay and activities in Austin, all underaged students should have a parental or SE approved adult volunteer supervisor with them. If they don't have their parents' supervision, the parents of the underaged participants should clearly name the SE approved adult supervisor selected for their child and communicate the name of the supervisor to the event coordinators. It is possible that multiple students have one adult supervisor, but the parents should communicate this in writing to the event coordinator. Please ensure the safety of all children during this event.
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please reach out to the IPSF coordinators. Mr. Binish Pampackal @ (972) 799-6855
and Mrs. Tessy Changankerry @ (469) 618-1715.

11. Safe Environment News: Human Trafficking
The following is a program and service of The National Catholic Risk Retention Group Inc. - VIRTUS Online
As caring adults, we can create a safer world when we work together as a community. This includes maintaining an awareness of the behavior of all adults within our programs and ministries, including our own.
Human trafficking is a reprehensible crime, and during times of crisis, it thrives as a business when traffickers adapt quickly to opportunities that arise as a result of the crisis. For instance, when schools and daycares close, parents are forced to work from home or leave kids in less than ideal environments for supervision during work hours. This often leads to an increase in screen time with less supervision as parents attempt to juggle employment requirements while being full-time caregivers.
Human Trafficking: What would you do in these scenerarios? Please click the link below to read this week's article:
